Flamboyant businessman, Edwin Sodi, has been implicated in the Tshwane water Cholera outbreak which has killed 21 people.
The Auditor General flagged Sodi and his partners in a report that was released in 2019.
Sodi’s companies, NJR projects and Blackhead consulting were awarded a joint venture tender of R292 million to expand Rooiwal Wastewater treatment plant.
A forensic report by Ligwa Advisory Services found that the bid evaluation committee did not include legal and financial advisors as required by the Procurement policies.
The five municipal officials who awarded the tender are currently undergoing a disciplinary hearing.
